We Love Family History!

In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 
we love Family History.
Elder McEwan, Elder Cruz (Zone Leaders in Primavera)
with Sister Nuñez and Sister Pineda welcome guests to the Family History Fair.
It is the Doctrine of Christ that each person must hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ,
and for himself accept or reject these teachings. 
Being a fair and unchanging God, these blessings are available to all, 
those living and those who have passed on to the other side of the veil.

For the Family History Fair,
classes were taught, presentations given and there was lots of information on doing your own family history.

We do genealogy research to find our kindred dead and perform ordinances, such as baptism, in our temples, for them.

In this way, they can then accept or reject the teachings of Christ and his atoning sacrifice for them.

I am so thankful for a loving God, who provides a path for all of his children to return to him, not only those who lived after his birth, death and resurrection.

 Here are some of the youth of the Primavera Stake doing indexing.  This means they are extracting names and dates from birth records here in Peru, and submitting those names for their ordinances. 
What a great youth activity.
